Every two years the Institute for the Advancement of Studies in Health (IASH) holds the only NLP conference in the US, a mellow and friendly event where a wide variety of NLPers present, network, and generally have a good time. This year the conference is scheduled for October 29-31, 2010, with one-day institutes preceding and following the conference (October 28 and November 1) in San Francisco near the airport. Real People Press is happy to be a sponsor.

It is a great opportunity to sample a variety of trainers and programs in one location. The next IASH conference will be in the Netherlands in 2012, so this may be your last chance to attend in the US during the next four years.

I have attended in the past, and found attendees to be a mellow bunch, and eager to learn, discuss, shmooze, and network. I won’t be going this year because of a conflicting commitment, but I highly recommend the conference, both for “newbies” to NLP, and “old hands” who want to find out what others in the field are doing.
